Thank goodness the Brownies had a bye week, we all needed a week to recharge.
This recipe is adapted from The Barbecue Bible, an award winning book by Steven Raichlen. Even though the book's over 500 recipes mostly contain meat, there are several vegetable and vegetarian sections and adaptable recipes The grilling technique chapters alone are worth a read.
This recipe is rather simple, but it will wow people. Appetizers are an underrated part of the tailgate experience especially if you can use the grill to make something special. This will turn heads and get your tailgate off to a great start. Enjoy!
- 1 pound (or more) baby bellas or other large button mushrooms
- 1/2 cup soy sauce or tamari (the original calls for oil, so just make sure your grill grate is oiled)
- 1 Field Roast Chipotle Sausage
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 bunch chopped fresh parsley
- 1/2 lemon
- Salt and pepper to taste
Use the indirect grilling method.
Remove the stems from the boomers. I cut a little wider around the center with a paring knife to fit a little more sausage in each cap.
Cut the sausage in pieces that snuggly fit inside each cap. This will vary depending on the size of the boomers.
Cover the caps with garlic and parsley. Then pour the soy sauce on the plate. You want the boomers to the covered and have a pool on the bottom to keep them moist. Squeeze the lemon on top and get ready to grill.
